A peak power reduction technique is proposed for subcarrier transmit power control applied orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) system. In the proposed system, carrier-holes are created by applying a partial non-power allocation (PNPA) technique in which no transmit power is allocated to subcarriers with lower received Eb/N0, and the amplitude and phase adjusted peak reduction subcarrier (PRS) is iteratively inserted in the non-power allocated subcarrier so as to suppress peak power. Computer simulation confirms that the proposed scheme can reduce peak power by 3.6 dB while keeping the same information bit-rate with conventional subcarrier transmit power control applied OFDM systems.
